New Fridge

We bought a new refrigerator last spring. We finally joined the nineties and got one with an ice maker and water in the door. It periodically makes a noise like something out of Jurassic Park. Several times over the first few weeks, I thought I was a goner. I’d be standing at the kitchen sink with my back to the raptor-I mean the fridge. Remember that part in the movie where the chubby guy is trying to sneak top secret stuff off the island? And he doesn’t make it? Remember the sound those things made? Kind of a clackety-clack/whirring sound? Our fridge sounds just like that. I’m getting used to it. Instead of jumping out of my skin every time it happens, I’m just a little startled and I think about dinosaurs.

  1. I like all your stuff and I hope the refrigerator settles down soon. It's bedtime.

  3. They do that- make unheard of noises at all hours. It's the compressor telling you it's still there. It probably deserves a good kick.

  4. Yay, I'm glad you have a blog. I really enjoyed reading all your posts, you're a talented writer. The Fawty-faw post had me chortling out loud. Keep 'em coming, and you're welcome to check out our blog, although it's pretty much just our boring life and lots of pictures of Kassidy.

  5. I just took the trash out to the curb (while the kids cleared the table after dinner). As I walked back in the kitchen Emma was laughing "Mom have you read Aunt Melinda's blog today?!"
